Can't believe Cabinda, Doss and Rush weren't kept on the 53 man roster. Only Rush made it onto the practice squad.

Ateman, Bell, Cotton, Damarea, Gafford, Mabin, Nelson, Phillips, Rush, Saubert make up the ten man practice squad.

Nathan Peterman is on IR (elbow) hence the reason we picked up Kizer to run scout team.

Cabinda is nothing special. For all the Doss love, he would have been a healthy scratch each week had he made it onto the 53 because he doesn't play special teams. He also drops a lot of easy balls.

As for Rush, he's made it onto the practice squad where he can develop. An injury or two will see him promoted.

Really disappointed about Peterman. I hope he is able to return later this year because he significantly improved this off-season under Gruden.

Raiders got played big time. Was always in the works (pats/browns).
Raiders got shafted twice now.
Traded a 3rd for Martavis Bryant and then a 3rd and a 5th for Brown.
For zero gain.
Stupid front offices/organizations keep doing stupid things.

He was always a dickhead but a very good one. But we got played on this I am almost certain. He had no intention of playing here.
For starters, he isn't clever enough to concoct a plan this good, let alone turn his back on $30 million guaranteed for less than half that and championships.

Wouldn't surprise me if ABs camp let out this rumour themselves, think about it, what looks better? AB acting like a complete s**t stains to get to NE so he can be on a championship team, or AB the egoltistical drama queen that has finally been revealed in all his glory after being removed from the cover of Tomlin and the Steelers?

Of course ABs camp would rather everyone think the former. Better to be a deceptive liar than a pathetic teammate and locker room cancer as he's openly shown everyone since signing with Oakland. Gotta keep try and keep his options open in case it doesn't work out in NE.

Not a chance you got played, they are just trying to save whatever face remains.

Rosenhous is a snake. Would have been more his planning than AB.
Ok then, let's pretend for a moment it's true. Why didn't he go to Buffalo then when he had the opportunity before Oakland? Could have already had a place sorted on that side of the country.

He went to the Raiders coz of the money mate. He's "happily" in NE becoz he can't exactly afford to be picky right now can he?

Oakland offered better picks plus they probably felt they could play the raiders FO and not Buffalo's
